UBRS and Razorfen Transmog Guides

Draenei enthusiasts!  Patch 6.0.2’s date has been officially announced, and it’s THIS Tuesday, Oct. 14th.  Are you excited about the new models yet?!  I always get pretty melancholy about the pre-expansion patches. Out with the old, many things I didn’t finish, etc… Except the Mists pre-patch, I was SO DONE with Cata, lol!  Wowhead, as always, has great guides on what is being removed and what is being added in the patch.

One of the changes coming in this patch is the dungeon revamps. In 6.0.2, and until the Warlords release, Upper Blackrock Spire is becoming a level 90 dungeon with a few bosses and special level 90 versions of some of the loot.  Not all of the items will be in this release, so check my guide below for what you may want to farm up this weekend!  After release, it will be a level 100 dungeon.  I’m not very clear on what gear will be dropping from that version.

Razorfen Downs, Razorfen Kraul and Blackfathom Depths are all getting graphical overhauls with some new bosses or storylines.  I’ve ran them a few times and they seem to drop the same loot.  I have had the Carapace of Tuten’kash drop from the renamed spider boss.  I just want to add a warning here though, the gear that dropped in Scarlet Halls during the Mists pre-patch completely changed appearance when the expansion launched.  Some of you may remember the Robes of Koegler changing from a pretty Mists-themed dress to a standard level 30-ish robe.  That being said, if there’s any pieces you absolutely want for transmog, you should try and farm them up at least before Nov. 13th.

To help you out with your ‘to farm or not farm’ dilemma, I’ve put together some guides on the unique pieces that drop from each dungeon.  Here, I will highlight some of my must-haves, but clicky on the dungeon title to visit the full guide over on Mog Companion!  I’ve added custom transmog set ideas to some of the items too, so click on the names in the guides to check that out.

Upper Blackrock Spire


Polychromatic Visionwrap

On of the more interesting pieces in this dungeon is the Polychromatic Visionwrap.  It shares it’s design with several dresses, but this is the only chestpiece of this model.  A level 90 version will drop in the pre-expansion dungeon, but after that is not clear.  If you have a character who wants to wear this, but is not 90, you have a few days left to grab it!

Another cloth item that I recommend going in for are the Spiritshroud Leggings.  These leggings are a similar model to what the draenei at the right is wearing, but a cream color.  They drop from the Beast, which is unfortunately after all the ‘event’ type bosses, making for a sloggy farm.  There is no updated version of these leggings, and they are not on the special level 90 loot table.

For plate, the only item I’d suggest maybe farming are the Warmaster Legguards.  They share a model with the Brutish Legguards, which are a random green drop, but depending on your server economy, or farming dedication, could be hard to come by.

Arcanite Champion

Arcanite Champion

For Blacksmiths out there, or anyone looking for a good investment, the plans for the Arcanite Champion drop from Goraluk Anvilcrack.  The plans are BOE, so they may be worth picking up to sell at some time in the future.

Most of the unique models of weapons will drop from the level 90 version, but there are three weapons from the quest to kill General Drakkisath that are unique. The Sword of Nefarian’s Hand is especially cool and might be a good weapon for a warlock with green fire’s felguard!


Razorfen Downs/Razorfen Kraul



As I mentioned earlier, the loot in these dungeons may stay the same.  I do want to highlight a few pieces from RFD that I think are worth farming, before, or after the patch.  For leather-wearers, Bonefingers are a great pair of black gloves that have a sort-of skeleton look to them.  If you’re looking to create badass hunter style mog of your own, the chest Avenger’s Armor is a BOE trash drop.  It shares models with a random world drop, but this one may be easier to farm. To be honest, I just bought mine off the AH, but it took a few weeks for it to show up.  Finally, for plate-wearers, the Carapace of Tuten’kash is a sleeveless version of the Tyrant’s Chestpiece, which can be pretty pricey on the AH.


Good luck with any farming you may undertake, and I’ll see everyone on the other side of patch day!

Lightning-Forged Reborn Weapons

Much like the re-released troll gear I posted about a little while ago, the weapons I’m going to feature here were taken out of the game with good old patch 4.0, the pre-Cataclysm patch.  These weapons were formerly made with a specialization of blacksmithing, Weaponsmithing.  Back in the day, both leatherworking and blacksmithing had 3 specializations you could train into, sort of like Gnomish vs. Goblin Engineering.  I’m not sure why they took out lw & bs but left engineering in, but I suppose they just weren’t as “fun”.  But, these weapons are back now with patch 5.2.  I’m really excited about it because I saw the Blazeguard used in someone’s Mogolympics set, and have wanted it ever since!

You can learn the recipes by visiting the Isle of Thunder and killing Itoka. Your server needs to have unlocked stage 4 of the Isle to access him.  He’s a little tricky to kill, but there is usually other people killing him for the daily.  He will drop a quest item, Strange Metal Ingot, that you turn in at the actual Thunderforge.  You will get the recipes for the ‘first stage’ of each weapon, a level 463 version.  After you make a 463 version, you will learn the recipe for an upgraded version which is level 476, followed by a level 502 weapon that you learn upon making the 476.  So, these weapons aren’t too bad to get either for transmog or upgrades.  All you need is a level 90 with 600 blacksmithing!  No special requirements for unlocking the island, although, you will need a lot of Ghost Iron bars to make your Lightning Steel Ingot every day 😉

5.2 Troll Gear Re-releases

When the troll raids Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman were revamped as 5-man dungeons in Cataclysm, much of the of the original gear was either removed, or recolored for the updated loot tables.  Since this was before transmog, not many people had the old gear hanging around.  Blizzard seems to be keyed into how much people love to mog old sets though, and they have brought these back with the introduction of the Isle of Thunder!  All of these items drop off of mobs on the island, and except for the Corroded Hacker, they are all BOE, so check out your local auction house if you’re not able to visit the new dailies hub yet.  I really love this idea of re-introducing removed gear as random green drops.  I’m keeping my finger crossed that the old Scholomance and Scarlet Monastery gear re-appears soon.  In the mean time, check out these fly sets













 Transmog extras: Mooncloth Vest
This set actually comes with a dress whose model is already in game.
Since the pants and gloves are new, I wanted to show the off here.

For more info, check out wowhead’s write up of all the drops.  There are a ton more
weapons, a red and purple recolor of the Amani Regalia, and some pieces that were
missing from recolors of other sets.

5.2 Weapon Transmog Changes

Now that patch 5.2 has arrived, we can finally mog some weapons into other weapons!  No more having to change out of your pretty pink outfit because you can’t find a mace to match 😀

The Burning CrusaderMasterwork Spiritblade DecimatorDespair

The change isn’t all encompassing, as you still can’t mog a dagger into a sword, but it is still pretty broad.  Two-handed maces, swords, and axes can be mogged into each other.  The same for one-handed maces, swords and axes.

Bladespire BroadaxeMasterwork Phantasmal HammerThe Willbreaker

Many of the weapons that were previously labeled as main-hand only have been changed to one-handed.  This is an excellent change, as I’m sure like me, you have tried to mog a new tanking mace into something with a different label.

Finally, great news for monks and druids – staves and polearms can be mogged into each other as well!  You do have to have the ability to equip both weapons, however.  So, sorry mages, no Hellreaver for you.

Wow Roleplay Gear has a nifty little chart and some additional details on the changes for more info.

Dreams Do Come True!

Arcane Wand of Sylvanaar and Regal Star

One of my favorite item models in the game has always been the star wands.  Every caster alt I made, I would hit up the auction house around level 16 to get a Skycaller.  When I found out there was an off-hand model, I started collecting those too!  I was so excited when transmog was announced that I’d finally get to use my star wands.  Well, mogging my wand wasn’t really all that exciting since you never really saw it, but with the changes to wands being main-hand items, my dual-weilding star wand dreams have at last come true!  I’d been stuck with a staff on my mages forever, but I got a wand the other day, and spent a couple of days doing archeology for the umbrella offhand.  Hooray for star wands!! 😀

More info on this mog can be found here.
